I applied for something I believed I had a shot at, other friends did as well.
I didn't get it.
I asked for feedback on what it was I needed to watch out for in future, I didn't get that either
I sat on the email I received, refusing to touch it, partly because it was a boiler plate response, and partly because I refused to believe someone building something new, would prioritize speed and efficiency over curiosity in another human being.
It's easy to say that's the world we live in, and to create stories for myself on why this thing not happening is a good thing. But that's the old me, and if I am not improving, what chance do others have.
So my response, that I wish to write, will try to evoke curiosity, and as a dear friend mentioned is a strong suit of mine, I will also try to smile with my heart.
Here's what I think a smile from the heart might sound like.
Thank you for sharing briefly what the dirt in your tunnel tastes like, and I appreciate that our paths diverge, I will look forward to the day we come across each other once more, at the top soil.
Your fellow worm
